Westerly Arts Café is not just a gallery space in Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly, it’s a meeting place, a point where art meets the community and “Where Art Comes Alive."  This new venue, now in its second year, combines all forms of Art, film, poetry readings, literary salons, music, theater, and performance art (and anything else we can offer). Our mission is to provide Westerly as a backdrop for all of the Arts and make Westerly a destination for artists and all who support the Arts.  We are also giving emerging artists a venue to perform and showcase their talents and established artists more visibility in our community. 

Our Website and Facebook page  will have all of the events.
